I removed glued down hardwood floors with pry bars and hammers after the flood here. This left lots of glue and splinters on the concrete slab. This grinder with the
RIDGID7 in. Blue 12-Segment Turbo Cup Grinding Wheel removed All the wood splinters and flattened the glue. It would have taken it completely off but this was sufficient for the 900square ft of flooring area. The grinder didn't slow down or over heat. And the wheel is still ready for more. This took about 8 hrs to complete trading off with another helper. I would have probably rented a large walk behind from the local Rent All but there was a week waiting list. This grinder did the job and I am very pleased with the purchase.

Makita made a solid tool with this 7" angle grinder. I used a masonry grinding wheel with it to smooth out old mortar underneath old tile I removed from a concrete slab. This tool didn't even flinch and cut my estimated job time in half.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JB06192 Great angle grinder - got the job done with ease!
I had ripped up the tile from my kitchen / bathroom leaving a bunch of quickset stuck to the concrete foundation. I struggled to figure out how to remove it so I could put down my wood floor in kitchen / install radient heat in bathroom floor.
This grinder with a diamond bit grinding wheel (http://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-7-in-24-Segment-Turbo-Cup-Grinding-Wheel-HD-TAW7024P1/202884372) removed the thinset with ease and I actually even leveled areas of my concrete floor that were uneven for easy cabinet installation.
Side note - be ready for a really dusty mess if attempting to do the same!!!!! Enclose the area and get good ventilation via fans

The only reason I bought this grinder was because the attachment I bought for removing flooring adhesive didn't fit the 9" grinder I already had. I ground away 170 sq. ft of cutback adhesive and hardly ever left off the trigger. The grinder was barley even warm after all of that work. This is now my go to machine for tough grinding jobs. Every time I buy a Makita power tool I wonder why I ever bought anything else.
